    Smile Heer M43 Einheitsfeldmutze.....with a twist!

    Hallo everybody,
    Iíd like to share with you the latest entry in my M43 collectionÖitís a beautiful M43 Einheitsfeldmutze coming from Rome, made of Regio Esercito Cordellino per Sottufficiali (the fabric we all refer to as ďGabardineĒ while in fact itís another kind of cloth altogether,albeit quite similar at first glance).
    Itís got a few very interesting features to it,first being the care with which itís been made,which surpasses just about any other M43 Iíve seen and owned,and the quite unusual trap,whose cockade is devoid of the black,its place being taken by a green ring which is but the base cloth of the BeVo insigna.
    The cap is chockfull of reinforcements and contruction-wise it's certainly the most cared-for M43 Iíve seen to date!
    I wonít indulge myself into a lengthy,boring description and let the pictures do the rest of the talking!
    Cheers
    Manny

    Never seen another quite like it Manny, beautiful cap and superbly made!!
    Is that your camera making the red so vivid and bright? It's blinding me!

    Regio Esercito Cordellino per Sottufficiali.

    Royal Army Cordellino for NCO's?

    Thank you guys for appreciating that !
    Yes Ben,the translation's absolutely correct!What we use to refer to as "Gabardine" when talking about tunics,trousers,coats and caps is in fact "Cordellino"...their weave is similar but they're different cloths altogether!
    THe more I look at this cap the more it amazes me...it's so beautifully made to look like a Million Dollars M43!
    The red of the cockade is absolutely normal,just like any other cockade on any other trap...it's made so vivid by my terrible lack of photographic skills !I'd like to know why this trap lacks the red circle...a problem with the machinery at the BeVo factory or a first attempt at a "subdued" insigna?I'd go for the former option in that it would be odd to delete a black circle only to leave a red roundel that would stick out like a sore thumb!
    Cheers
    Manny

    I had a camera years ago that always made any red coloured item stand out exactly like this. I could never solve the problem so just bought a new camera.

    That's EXACTLY what I intend to do Ben.... red colored things stand out as if they had been hit by some strange ray coming from outer space no matter how I change the camera settings!

    Get a Nikon camera, they have superb lenses especially for macro photos.

    Manny, can you stick around for a while? I need your help with a Luft Trop cap.
